Respect is the key to creating a world-beating workplace, writes L.M. Sixel. Bosses need to respect their workers enough to give them bad news to their face, but also to challenge them to excel and to be considerate about their needs. "It doesn't take a lot of perks or fancy consultants to make your company a great place to work," Sixel writes. "[G]iving employees the responsibility and power to get their jobs done and giving them respect go a long way to employee satisfaction."
